WoW Turner with the driving layup early!


Aaron Holiday starting, Brogdon playing great in the early going.

It's a weird world we live in.

Headcoaches wearing face masks when strolling the sideline, taking them off when shouting instructions in the faces of the player lineup during time-outs.

It's like the NBA screams for aid, to get health instructions, physical health in this case and without any doubt also for finances.
They just can't get awareness themselves on how all those player contracts get way way way out of proportion.

Stop the madness, don't invest in people who are incapable of showing any sign of moderation. Invest in mother nature in stead.

Surprised the refs rewarded the acting from Drummond with flagrant called on Aaron Holiday. Could clearly see Aaron trying to cut off a clear lane and Drummond threw a shoulder into him and then dove the opposite.

NBA refs are total garbage! Is it incompetency or just out right bias and being crooked?

Drummond eating us alive on the boards and inside. There's a significant difference in the Domas-centric offense when we play a team that can match his size and physicality. Even so, the team is playing pretty well and we're taking care of business (famous last words...)

Also, Kelan Martin entering the rotation with Warren out is interesting. Doug seems to be the biggest beneficiary in terms of overall minute increases. Kelan hasn't been able to buy a bucket - he's just kinda a body out there.

I had figured we might see a little Jakarr or Cassisus, but that hasn't been the case so far.

I see how it is. When you played the Cavs, even your 3rd unit look like good players

Don't invest money or much time in people who prefer to live in a way that is the opposite of our lifestyles.

I love watching the game of basketball, but the financial excesses make me turn away from it.

The crowd has more power than it realizes, it just has to be less dependant of the modern bread and games.

In other words, involve others in your simple lifestyle. Spread the greatness of simplicity to as many people as you can, NBA included.

So, we shouldn’t invest in it, but we should keep watching it and bring others along? Seems like investing more, doesn’t it?

No, I mean turn away from the game for a while (unless it's all free) and try doing what I do to you now and others: encouraging others to do the same. It's a great world out there, the NBA is turning itself into a despicable one.

Oh. Seemed counter-intuitive that was your meaning as you were also talking about watching the game. But, alas, we move on.

Hope you’re healthy and well.

I'm good, thank you! Keep spreading out the positive vibes to our team and everyone. I'll be reading boxscores for the most part.
